If you’ve ever tried using charcoal for a grill before, then you’re acquainted with how difficult it can be to get the charcoal to light. Looft Lighter has a new approach to this old problem—a lighter that uses superheated air to get the fire going. The Charcoal Electric Lighter and Firestarter will light charcoal, briquettes, wood logs, pellets, and more in as less than 60 seconds.
The lighter and firestarter is a handheld, wand-shaped device that replaces lighter fluid, lighters, and matches. The device superheats air to 1100 degrees Fahrenheit and blasts it at your fire’s fuel. Just plug in the want and it will take care of the rest. You won’t ever have to worry about the lingering taste of lighter fluid on your hamburgers, nor will you have to strike match after match after match as you try to get a briquette lit. Plus, the lighter has an integrated bottle opener on the stand, so you can enjoy a cold one while you get the fire started.
The process of using the Looft Lighter is simple. Just set up your fuel—whether it’s charcoal, woodchip, or logs—and tough them with the tip of the lighter. Press the button on the lighter and keep it aimed at the same spot for around 60 seconds. When sparks start to appear or you see a glow, pull the lighter back a couple of inches, but keep the hot air directed at the spot. The fire will start up and you’re done getting the fire going.
You can purchase the Looft Lighter Charcoal Electric Lighter and Firestarter from Huckberry for just $79 and say goodbye to the frustration of trying to get a fire going. Just push a button, point the wand, and give it a minute and you’ll have a blaze in no time.
